290 Registration Termination process

Under the Sex Offender Registration Act, sex offender registration will convert from a lifetime requirement to a tier-based registration system with a minimum registration time period of 10 years, 20 years, or lifetime, largely depending on the registrable offense. The state Department of Justice will designate tiers for all current registrants and will notify the registering law enforcement agency of the designation. Registrants may petition the court in the county of registration to terminate the registration requirement if the registrant has been registered for the minimum required time and meets other criteria.
